ASK DR NOVOA – Is it harmful to eat Chili or hot sauce when I am pregnant.

NO.

Although a pregnant woman may have a more sensitive stomach, eating spicy food or chili will not harm a baby.

An additional consideration is if you suffer from indigestion or acid reflux which could make your symptoms worse by eating spicy, or food with pepper or chili.

So as long as you can handle the taste, go ahead and enjoy your chili.
